This rocky canyon is yet another way to approach Conquest Ridge and the Year of the Cat Gully as well as the Shangri-La Valley and is home to a number of quality boulders and problems scattered about it's reaches.

Some of the better problems here include Jet Li (V0), Kung Fu Grip (V3), Game of Death (V4), Mortal Kombat (V5), Enter the Dragon (V5), Roll the Bones (V6), The One (V6) and Paper Dragon (V10).

Getting There 

Hike the main trail past the Flash Gordon and Trailside Boulders and turn right just past the House Boulder to enter the Canyon proper. Approach time is 15-20 minutes.

Had the (5 Star) author bothered to contact ANY locals, she may have gotten some real info. Instead, she just lifted it all from Dr. Topos.
